Pro-life vid of day: Prayer sustained pregnant woman with cancer

roorda

by Hans Johnson

Stacy Roorda was stunned to get a diagnosis of Stage Four breast cancer – and then in a follow-up test came the news that she was pregnant. With the aggressive cancer feeding on the hormone essential to the baby, she was urged to abort the child so they could start intensive chemotherapy immediately.

A devout Christian, she was sustained by a prayer chain in her church, and boldly told the doctors: “I wouldn’t give up my other two children, I’m not giving up this one. So you need to figure out a plan B.” When the doctors left them alone:

Abortionist quack sells clinic to sexually abusive abortionist

by Kelli Brigham sold his interests to his medical director, Vikram Kaji, whose medical license was suspended in New Jersey and Pennsylvania in the mid-1990s for sexually abusing patients and wrongly prescribing controlled substances. In 2013, the New Jersey State Board of Medical Examiners found that Kaji, 79, “had failed to adequately fulfill his responsibilities […]

“Immediatist v Incrementalist” debate analysis, Part I: Let babies die today, we can save the rest later”

2015-04-29_1141Read my Prologue here.

The most disturbing aspect of the “immediatist” anti-abortion movement is that which is hardest to get its followers to acknowledge.

That is, by opposing incremental legislation they are condemning babies to die, some in excruciating ways, who would otherwise be saved.

Pro-life vid of day: Wife wouldn’t give up on comatose husband

by Hans Johnson When newlywed Matthew Davis crashed his motorcycle into a parked car, he sustained multiple injuries, the worst of which was brain damage. His wife Danielle was advised  there was a 90% chance he would remain in a vegetative state, and a week later one doctor said if it were him, he would […]

Pro-choicer: Hollywood abortion portrayal hasn’t changed enough

by Carder Hollywood has long been reluctant to offer realistic depictions of what it’s like to end a pregnancy, despite the fact that roughly 1 in 3 American women will have an abortion before age 45. When it does summon the courage to address the issue at all, Tinseltown has too often distorted the facts […]

  • A student at Harvard shares her abortion experience in the Harvard Crimson:

    I headed to the clinic a week later with just a book, a water bottle, my Harvard ID, and a locket containing a picture of my ex-boyfriend and me. The procedure didn’t take long. It wasn’t even that physically painful. But when it was over, I screamed. I couldn’t stop screaming. As I write these words, it has been over a month since the abortion — and on the inside that screaming hasn’t stopped.

  • American Life League’s Judie Brown says that in our society, Granny might be better protected if she were an animal instead of a human:

    It becomes clearer every day that if Granny were not a human being, her chances of being protected from evil acts designed to take her life would be far better….

    So we have to ask how it is that the chimpanzees Hercules and Leo will have their day in court, but Granny can feel free to either exit on her own terms or wait for a doctor or nurse to authorize her death because she signed a form allowing others to make life and death decisions for her. Human beings are expendable; chimpanzees are not? Something is incredibly wrong with this picture.

“Immediatist v Incrementalist” debate analysis: Prologue

aha-debate-e1430057755276He asked for it, he got it.

Several months ago Abolish Human Abortion’s T. Russell Hunter issued an open challenge to anyone from the pro-life community to debate him on the topic of “immediatism,” which he supports, versus “incrementalism,” which the so-called “establishment” generally supports. His description of the debate frame:

I would argue for the abolitionist position - that all people who are opposed to abortion ought to unify around abolishing all forms of intentional prenatal destruction regardless of the age of the human being in question - and my opponent could argue for the pro life establishment’s position that we should focus our time and energy on regulating abortion while it remains legal and seek incremental gains against it.
